The iCloud is a cloud system used for apple products and it’s contents. Every person that owns an apple device automatically gets up to 5 GB of free space. If you are the kind of person who loves to take tons of photos or is a social butterfly with an endless amount of contacts, that small space can be taken up quickly. If you want to upgrade, you have to pay a monthly fee for some extra storage. Depending on how much extra you want will depend on the price. For 20 GB it’s $.99 per month, 200 GB for $3.99 a month, 500 GB for $9.99, and 1 TB for $19.99 a month.
With this service, you can save countless items. You can save important things like photos, documents, apps, notes, and contacts. You also have the ability to share photos, calendars, locations, and much more with your friends and family. Also, you can save all this same info with multiple apple products. For example, you can have things stored on your phone and later have access to them on your computer.
On Apple’s website, they state that data from the iCloud is secure and privacy is taken very seriously. Data is secured by being encrypted when being sent over the internet. This entails that your stuff is protected from unauthorized access.
I personally own 3 Apple products and I love using the iCloud. I especially love how easily accessible things are from each device. One thing I don’t like is how little storage there is, and I am not about paying extra money for extra space. But, it works for the basic needs I have. It also saves me hassle when I upgrade between iPhones.
